Here are the photos of the orchids I promised the other day, though the wind and the rain have almost spoilt them. I don't know the name, they came from Bill's mother's home in Brisbane and I just ignore them other than watering them occasionally!
I love the red centres these bromeliads get at this time of the year
The really exciting news is that I can see very brightly and could read to the second bottom line on the chart with NO glasses! In fact I am now not wearing any glasses for the first time since I was seventeen! I keep feeling for them, it is very strange. I had to buy a cheap pair of magnifying glasses from the pharmacy to tide me over for close reading till I can get my eyes tested in a month's time, but I am typing this unaided - yeaaay!!!!
